Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Christmas In July
Welcome to ReannaLily Designs stop along the blog hop!
Thanks for visiting. Read through and head over to all the other blogs for 11 chances to win.
It is never to early to start working on sewing for the holidays. Gifts, decor, games, calendars – all great for the holiday season. The staff at Martingale Press/That Patchwork Place have put together some fun staff projects in the new book Celebrate Christmas.
I have two favorite projects in the book.
How fun is this tree skirt? It had texture, depth, dimension and a contemporary/scrappy feel to it. I think I’m drawn to the non-quilter-fabric shimmering out from underneath. It is a really straight-forward pattern, too.
My second favorite, possibly for the same reasons is the Snow + Snowflake Pillow.
They are clean, crisp, and are appliqued onto silk. The textures are just great. Wool felt + silk. Lovely lovely.

“When do you start your holiday sewing?”
July? December? January? None, I just like it when my sister makes things for me.
Any answer is a good one. The winner will be chosen at random on Monday July 14th. Please make sure your email address comes through so I’ll be able to notify you.
